Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

28 Jul

After the Comic-Con Instagram special we resume normal service and a fun mix of returning to set with iZombie, Barb from Stranger Things love, saying goodbye to Looking and celeb birthday wishes from some of our favorites. Pretty much a whole lot of dreaminess.

A very cute dress and Amy Sedaris is also repping bestie Sarah Jessica Parker in a pair of her pumps.

 

I haven’t watched the Looking movie yet as I’m saving it – sometimes I do this when I know there will be no more – but Frankie J Alvarez is giving me all the feelings as he documents the end of this special show.

 

Back from Comic-Con and the lab coats are back on for the iZombie autopsy team.

I made it on the floor

New Girl creator Liz Meriwether has been covering both political conventions for Vulture and it has been wonderful, hilarious and emotional.

 

Everything about this is perfect.

 

Also in the category of best celeb birthday wishes.

 

And January Jones should continue to caption all Mad Men promo shots.

Elementary season 5 sneak peek; don’t think the landing will be quite this comfortable for Sherlock.

 

BrainDead is quickly becoming one of my favorite shows of the summer; the cast is great, it is fun and the costuming is highly covetable. Former Good Wife costume designer Daniel Lawson continues to hit it out of the park.

 

A reminder that I still need to watch BoJack Horseman. I don’t know how I have let it get to three seasons without seeing any (I know).

It shocked me to find this photo because I remember the day so well. I was respected enough to be honored at the Maui Film Festival – but not known enough to have a stylist or "glam squad". I found this Madewell dress in my closet. The most I knew how to do for grooming was pin half of it back and blink on a few coats of mascara. Before we went to the ceremony I felt flashes of embarrassment – I worried I was too fat, too ugly, too depressingly banal to be honored. I cringed to take photos. But today I see this moment and feel only love for myself. There is nothing wrong with this person. She is honest and beautiful and committed to showing up for this life. I wish I saw myself then as I see myself now. There is no need to waste your time working to be anything other than you. So hey, #tbt – thank you for the chance to honor all the hilarious ways we didn't know ourselves upon first meeting, and all the exciting new ways we get to know ourselves while we keep living.

An important look back from Brie Larson. We are so lucky to have her share this experience in relation to where she was and where she is now. And also that dress is wonderful. Sometimes what you have in your closet is all you need.

Hollywood Reporter’s 2013 Comedy Showrunner Roundtable

11 Jun

The Emmy nominations will be announced on July 18 and so the roundtables featuring potential recipients continue. While there are too many to cover here at TV Ate My Wardrobe we want to focus on the ones that provoke both entertaining and interesting discussions and the comedy showrunner table has done just this. This Hollywood Reporter panel includes both network and cable faces; Mike Schur (Parks and Recreation), Greg Daniels (The Office), Liz Meriwether (New Girl), Steve Molaro (The Big Bang Theory), Matthew Carnahan (House of Lies) and Bruce Helford (Anger Management).

A large portion of the conversation focuses on the evolving business model of television and how the ratings system still hasn’t caught up with the way that audiences consume their favorite shows (it is mentioned several times that New Girl is a big DVR ratings performer). They discuss past and present success stories on network television with Seinfeld as an example of a show that didn’t fit the broad cookie cutter type sitcom and while most of the shows represented have relatively low numbers, Steve Molaro is the showrunner on The Big Bang Theory which is the highest rated sitcom at the moment. NBC has been the focus of a lot of the sitcom ratings think pieces because it used to be the sitcom powerhouse and now it languishes behind everyone else. Mike Schur makes the point that cable networks have a specific brand and can tailor their programming to this, whereas networks have a responsibility to have broad appeal.

Schur also points out that there is too much to watch “I’m going to die from starvation because I have too much TV to watch! Wherever you are in the world, and whatever kind of person you are, there’s 50 shows that are great for you.” This echoes what Alan Sepinwall said in a recent piece and was a topic of discussion in a recent roundtable discussion that I took part in (and I have so many shows to catch up on with ScandalGame of Thrones and Orphan Black being just three of them).

Other topics include product placement (Liz Meriwether has regrets), studio notes and the ways they get around these, the big Nick and Jess decision (others weigh in on their experiences of ‘with they/won’t they’ couples) and how the dramatic aspects of half hour shows make award classification a tricky task.

Watch the full roundtable below and for anyone who is interested in how the creative departments deal with the business side it’s totally worth it.
